Default Best Sound Card

I am lost...

I can't seem to find a high end sound card. Basically I have a 5.1 bose system but I want a bad *** card to match it up. I plan on listening to music and watching movies with it A LOT. Not sooo much for gaming or anything.

Anyone have any suggestions??? Cost really isn't an issue either.

Thanks,

Mike

Something like the Creative Fatal1ty sound card series would 'match' that bose system quite well. Well, sort of...

If cost isn't any issue, then there are insanely good sound cards costing tens of thousands of dollars. I presume you don't mean something that bad ***. Some sort of budget limit would be helpful

LOL true enough. I would say a budget is like $350 for a sound card.

I was checking into things like this

Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD

Seems like a fairly solid card and it's like $250

But yeah I'm not too sure. If I could get a couple suggestions to compare to that'd be awesome.

Thanks,

Mike

I think these are good. From what I've heard about them, it sounds like they are good.
